Friday, August 10th, 2012

Article source: Francisco Vieira de Campos

Each project always represents a renewed commitment to capture what is unique and non-transferable in each architectural episode.

N2X035 HOUSE in Azores Islands, Portugal by N2X Arquitectos

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

Article source: N2X Arquitectos

This project is located on a plot of land of some interest in a place called Lugar da Ribeira da Praia. We started from an unusual context, as this plot housed some ruins at a higher location, naturally kept apart from the surrounding lower agglomerate with which it apparently dialogues and which we then designated as “village”.

Externato Carvalho Araújo in Braga, Portugal by J M Carvalho Araújo Arquitectura e Design

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012

Article source: J M Carvalho Araújo Arquitectura e Design

A large property nowadays too divided. We tried not to aggravate their characterization and to safeguard the reference of the existing building.

It was important for us to preserve the environment of the existing entry of the manor house, and reduce the environmental impact of new volumes, looking in all to make a new front to enrich the future city park.
